HILLSBORO, Ore. – The Hillsboro Hops season is now less than one month away and baseball fans are getting excited for the area’s new minor league team.
The team unveiled their new uniforms and showed off their new ballpark Thursday. The new home jerseys are white with the word “Hops” on the front and the away jerseys are gray with “Hillsboro” scrawled across the front.
It took two months to design the new park, and so far, it’s taken six months to build. The construction is right on schedule with the same “Matrix” turf used at the Cowboys stadium in Texas.
The ballpark will see about 45,000 fans at the home opener June 17 against the Eugene Emeralds.
